    I'm interested if still available pm me a price.
  4. Acan losing color?

    I would almost be willing to bet its from your leds. Almost all acans lose their red color under leds. Ive had three different varieties of red under my ai sols and all have turned some sort of Orange. It's a real bummer but leds screw with acan colors
  5. identify this nudibranch please!

    hmmm.... i dont have a ton of zoas in my tank and i feel like i would notice if any turned up missing or eaten.
  6. hey guys i need your help identifying this nudibranch i found in my tank. it is the second one ive found so far in the last week and i found both in the day. one on the glass and one on a frag plug. they are pretty small one. one is tiny and id say the large one is no bigger than 1 cm. i havent seen any damage to my corals including montis or zoas/palys. also it has what almost looks like gold flakes on its back. if anyone can help me get an id thatd be awesome

    Calvin, I'm not sure if this has been brought up in your thread yet but I love your acans and was wondering if you are able to keep red acans from turning orange under your ai sol. My red acans all turned orange when I put them under my ai sol and I've heard the same happens to other peoples under leds. Many of yours appear to still have a nice red color though.
  8. My 'first' salt water tank

    Looks sweet to me. I just tore down my 12 gallon nanocube that I had up for 5 yrs and moved everything into my new setup. There are some pics of what I had in it on my thread. I had an intank media basket that goes in the far right chamber and loved it. Your should check them out. Can hold filter media, chemipure, purigen, etc to keep your water nice and clean. I like the new scape, looks good. Happy reefing!
  9. Your best bet is to find your local reef forum and buy a complete setup that someone is getting rid of. You will spend half the money and could probably find a nice nano setup in your price range. And if there is 23 of you throwing in $20 a piece would more than likely get your everything you wanted. But I would definitely find your local reef forum and see what people have up for sale. My local forum is fairly small and the hobby isn't that popular in central ky but a new setup goes up for sale weekly, and many of them nano. At the very least you could purchase used equipment. Oh and don't trust the LFS for a second. My #1 rule in this hobby.
  10. Which new test kits should I purchase?

    i would go for salifert or hanna meters if you can afford them. only hanna ive had a problem with is calcium all the others i have are great. besides hannas i recommend salifert tho.
  11. Favorite online dealers

    Sorry to thread jack but I think he told me he lives in indiana just across the river from louisville. what part of ky were you in? Im in winchester/lexington. GO CATS! As for online vendors for dry goods i like premiumaquatics live goods i like liveaquaria.com they are great and have awesome customer service.
  12. hey guys havent done an update in a few weeks. figured id share a few pics too. everythings going pretty well. pretty much diatom and algae free now in the 33. still nervous to move everything from my 12 gallon though. Ive moved all my z's and p's and my acan. also have some ricordea in there. also moved the german blue polyp monti, undata, and pearlberry a couple weeks ago...the montis are doing fine but the pearlberry is doing just ok... my Ph has been swinging a lot lately from like 7.8-8.00 on an average day and when i opened a lot of windows yesterday when it was nice it went all the way up to 8.25. today it went all the way back down to 7.8. I've got to find a way to stablize it before I put all of my nice sps corals in there. been thinking of dosing kalk in my ATO water but still not sure... Anyway here are some pics... First is a pic from a couple weeks ago before i added the monti's or pearlberry. ill get some new pics this weekend maybe of the 33. The rest of these are from my 12 gallon. The first three are a few new corals I picked up this week. These are going to be the last corals I pick up for a while, Im going to have a hard time fitting everything I have in the 33 as it is haha. First is the infamous GARF bonsai Second is a small frag of probably my favorite coral out there, a montipora setosa and an awesome superman montipora stuff has been growing in my 12 gallon, figured id show some comparison pics from like 3-4 weeks ago to now. not amazing growth or anything but pretty good i think for a 12 gallon crammed full. first is the hawkins from about 3-4 weeks ago and now tri color a few weeks ago and today and this is the green slimer a few weeks and now, its starting to form a second branch Thanks for looking, I promise to start taking more pics of the 33 instead of all these of my 12 gallon haha
  13. SPS Green slimer question

    looks ok to me. id say the lighter side is from being shaded in the tank it was in before. as for it turning lighter everywhere it might be bleaching from being in higher light in your tank than what it was in before. you could move it lower and see if it gets greener unless like you said you dont want to move it and you can just live with the lighter green. looks fine to me though.
  14. Looks like a spaghetti worm to me. Not really harmful, usually bury themselves in sand and put out sweepers to grab excess food and detritus
  15. Low PH?

    I have this problem as well. It's most likely your home is tightly closed to outside air and has excess co2 in your houses air. Simply opening a window and leaving my house heater off for the day cuz it was nice here raised mine from 7.8-7.9 to 8.2 in a day. Id try opening a window for a while and see if that helps. If that doesn't help if your tank is only two weeks old that could be another reason its low still. Sorry thought your said tank was two weeks old not cycles two weeks ago... Another possibilty would be running your airline from your skimmer to the outside with a longer tubing....
